Plugin Activation: Fatal Error (5 posts)

    Brand new to WordPress.org...

    I've tried to activate several plugins after manually copying the files onto my server and they always say "Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error."

    This is the third time it's happened. Am I copying them wrong? Whenever I can upload a zip file of the plugin and unzip it in my server, they're fine... but when I copy them manually they get errors.

    WHat does it mean "copy manually"? How do you do that? We usually say that we upload a plugin (and any other files) via FTP.

    What I always do:
    - download
    - unzip
    - read the README
    - upload via FTP (what is instructed)
    - activate

    I'm having this issue as well. I have attempted to activate three different plugins that give me this same message. "plugin could not be activated because it created a fatal error"

    They are:

    "now reading"
    "wp-postrating"
    "post star rating"

    All other plugins I've activated since upgrading to WP2.2 have worked without a hitch.
